DENVER -- Aug. 1, 2017 --

 Wazee Digital, a leading provider of cloud-native video management and licensing services, today announced that Images of Freedom(R) has added rare images of Sen. John S. McCain III to its extensive media library. Built on the Wazee Digital Core platform, Images of Freedom is a media library of the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) and offers citizens online access to a wealth of public-domain still and video assets.

The new collection of images depicts McCain, then a U.S. Navy lieutenant commander, returning home in 1973 after five and a half years of internment in a Hanoi prison camp during the Vietnam War. The images were made available by the U.S. Defense Imagery Management Operations Center (DIMOC) Still Imagery Collection.

"This rare and extremely valuable collection will be inspirational for all Americans, but especially veterans and, now, cancer survivors -- given Sen. McCain's courageous new fight with the disease," said Josh Hatter, senior vice president, operations, Wazee Digital. "The images are just the latest example of how Images of Freedom continues to enhance its media library to protect and preserve America's visual history. It's an honor for Wazee Digital to be such a central part of this effort." 

Running on the Wazee Digital Core platform, Images of Freedom is a massive, searchable library of military audio, video, and still imagery built in cooperation with the DOD. Through the media library, anyone -- students and educational institutions, families of military personnel, members of the media, documentarians, and others -- can easily retrieve any of more than a million U.S. military images and videos dating back to before World War II. Newly digitized and metadata-enriched assets are fed daily to Core, which powers the Images of Freedom archive. 

As the audiovisual records-keeper for the U.S. military, DIMOC engaged Wazee Digital to digitize and bring the military's most treasured and irreplaceable audiovisual assets to the American people in a phased approach, with still imagery first and then audio and video a few months later. Some of these rare assets have never been seen by the public before.
